My child gave me a huge scare tonight. She got out of bed and came into the livingroom with her face all red and red blotches all over her sides and back. I thought OMG she has caught that target rash Daniel had. I had nothing here to stop her itching or reduce her fever. I called Emma, told her what was happening. She came over here with all her medications. It isn't the target rash cause there's no bulls eye in the center. Emma asked if she was allergic to anything cause it looks like the same rash Marissa get's when she eats strawberries. I was thinking nothing was different today or tonight that she has eatten. Then Emma asked about soap. It hit me then. While I was cooking dinner tonight, I was also washing dishes. Rebecca would go over to the dishpan and play in the bubbles while I was cooking, and I caught her rubbing them on her face and sides and stomach. Where the red blothes are, is the places she was rubbing the bubbles. It is AJAX lemon dish soap. I think maybe she is allergic to it? Can that be possible? Emma rubbed Cortizone-10 cream on all the red spots, and we gave her Benedryl and Tylenol. About 30 minutes later her face started clearing up and so did the other blotches. There is 2 spots where it is bubbled a little, like when you get a bad sunburn and it bubbles a little before it drys up and peels. Emma stayed about 30 minutes, and in the 30 minutes she was here it cleared up alot. I was freaking out. But I calmed down after Rebecca said she felt alot better. She even asked to go back to bed a few minutes after Emma left. I go in there every 15 minutes and check on her. I won't be sleeping very well tonight, I'll be too worried about Rebecca. If it's still on her in the morning I am taking her to the doctor. He is open saturdays til noon. And they do accept emergency walk ins. Just if you can say a little prayer that it all goes away and she is fine in the morning and she can sleep tonight.
Love to all.................Cindy
